After three years of planning and fundraising, JoAnn Ryan is opening Connecting Point of Park Cities (CPPC) tomorrow. CPPC is a day center for adults with special needs, which was inspired by Ryan’s 24-year-old disabled son, Ryan Albers. CPPC will strive to provide a meaningful, stimulating program for its students that offers social, educational, and vocational purposes for all ranges of disabilities.
The center is located at Central Christian Church in West Highland Park, and will remain there for a year while they search for a more permanent location. CPPC’s most prominent event of the year was an inaugural luncheon at the Belo Mansion that featured guest speakers Ellen and Clayton Kershaw, both HPHS graduates.
